Dirty weekends

Nothing rekindles the flame quite like a weekend away together, so head off on one of these mini adventures that’ll have you mastering flamenco in the city of its birth or getting mucky down on the farm

26 SAIL TO THE CHANNEL ISLANDS

Why be ships in the night when you can get on board the same boat and sail away across the channel? Universal Yachting runs sailing course weekends for couples and small groups wanting a private adventure (four-day sail from £399 per person; universalyachting.com). The three-cabin skippered yacht leaves from Southampton and takes guests across the Channel to Cherbourg, arriving in time for a candlelit dinner on terra firma. Day two sees the boat party head through the Alderney Race to the island of Guernsey, where there is time to unwind before the return voyage. The emphasis is on having a fun and relaxing weekend, and participants can be as active or as passive onboard as they desire – learning the ropes from the friendly skipper or sitting back on deck and enjoying the shifting view, G&T in hand.
